Kakuchopurei’s Best Games Of 2019 So Far

It’s the halfway point of 2019, and we’ve seen a whole slew of titles big and small already out on shelves and on the digital platforms of your choice. And because some of you want to find out what else is there to play apart from the first two games we’re going to mention on this “Best Games Of 2019 So Far” List, we figured we should expand your gaming palette.

Note that while some of these titles aren’t 80 or even 100 out of 100 titles, they’re still worth playing and buying because they offer that “je ne sais quoi” that other titles of this year lack. Plus, some of them may be on discount or flew past your radar; you’ll need folks like us to remind you that triple-A gaming isn’t the only type of entertainment available.

Resident Evil 2 (PS4, PC, Xbox One)

The problem with a lot of games nowadays is that they have a lot of fluff. You know, the not-so-fun parts that you have to play so that you can get to the actually fun sections. But some games, like Resident Evil 2, don’t do that.

In RE2, your mission is to get out of a police station during a zombie outbreak and that’s all you’re focused on doing. By god, Capcom really nailed it. Zombies are resilient and there a lot of enemies you can’t really kill, so if you’re looking for something that’ll keep you on your toes, this is the game.

Sekiro (PS4, PC, Xbox One)

From Software’s latest ninja title is what happens if you take Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden and turn him into an actual ninja who dies from a few hits and isn’t a friggin’ superstar killer. You need to be an actual ninja when dealing with the obstacles and foes in the game. You’ll also need to figure out the posture and parry/blocking/dodging system if you want to make it deeper beyond Ashina. And believe us when we say it’s all worthwhile; Sekiro makes you feel like you can take on anything once you conquer its many trials, shenanigans, and battles.

Also, it’ll make you hate giant apes, snakes, and chickens who double as alarm bells.

Devil May Cry 5 (PS4, PC, Xbox One)

“Easy to learn, hard to master”. I could be talking about maths but no, it’s the the beauty of Devil May Cry 5 that I’m talking about. A power-hungry demon plans to devour the world and you’re invited to the party to stop him. It doesn’t matter if you’re a long-time DMC fan or a newcomer, the game’s responsive controls will get you in the groove in no time.

You’ll have exploding prosthetic arms, motorcycle-swords, and a demon leopard-cat-thing in your arsenal. So keep calm and be SSStylish.

Slay The Spire (PC)

A single-player card game that isn’t a slog like Hearthstone’s offerings and gets more fun the longer you put up with its randomness? Sign us up please! The essence of what makes Slay The Spire a great card game are all present here: the deck-building, the optimization, the surprises you can unleash once a plan comes together, the good and bad bits of roguelike dungeoneering all made quick and fast-paced in a sense.

When the game offers mutators like 1HP runs or all-rare deck fights on the fly, you know you’ve stumbled onto a gem of a game.

Kingdom Hearts 3 (PS4)

Kingdom Hearts 3

Fans of the franchise have waited a ridiculously long time for this game, across three generations of gaming. While it didn’t turn out to be perfect, it was certainly worth the wait for this fan. Kingdom Hearts 3 provided an emotionally-satisfying ending and the franchise’s most polished gameplay yet (with the exception of those repetitive Attractions and forced minigames) while leaving the series open for future instalments.

It was sort of Avengers Endgame equivalent for gamers this year. Nothing else this year has come close to giving me the same sense of utter satisfaction and desolate emptiness at the same time. I cried, and I will again.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (PS4, PC, Xbox One)

Ace Combat 7 7

I waited almost as long for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown as I did for Kingdom Hearts 3, with the last major (numbered) title in the franchise having been released back in 2007. It appealed to franchise veterans, as AC7 returned to the series roots with its classic unchanged UI and same intense arcade jet combat from the older titles.

It is also one of the few games in which I actually dabble in multiplayer (I’m primarily a single-player gamer), so that’s another testament to how good the game is. Where else can you find a superb arcade flight sim like this in the current age of games saturated with battle royales and MOBAs?

Dragon Quest Builders 2 (PS4)

Dragon Quest Builders 2 10

I hate Minecraft and all games belonging to the same genre, but then Dragon Quest Builders 2 came along and broke my expectations for what a Minecraft-style game can be. It plays more like a conventional JRPG, featuring elements like a surprisingly strong narrative and massive game size.

While the game hasn’t exactly sold me to the merits of the Minecraft sandbox genre, I can probably recommend the game to other fellow JRPG fans, if not for its simplistic combat and tedious (to a point) gameplay.
